What Are Your EMS Benefit Goals?

When you think of benefits of EMS employment. Do you focus on pay, vacation, sick time? Or.. do you think about things like available continuing education, the partner you are with, schedules and how busy an organization is? It’s important to think about all these elements and more when applying for a career in EMS and what is most important is actually what you are looking to get out of your employment. Take a listen as Jim and Josh talk about these elements and maybe even bring up some benefits you may not have thought of.

EMS Student, Preceptor Education Balance

Being an EMS paramedic or EMT student is tough. Yet being a preceptor is equally hard. I see too many of each not approaching common struggles the right way. Which leads to frustration and overwhelm and even having students quit their studies.

This episode of the podcast I talk a bit about how to balance it all out and how everyone has to be accountable.

Hierarchy of EMS | Where Do You Fit In?

Where do you stand in the hierarchy of EMS when it comes to skills and knowledge? Are you satisfied where you fit in?

Don’t Settle For One EMS Option

As 2018 comes to an end I wanted to get one more episode of the podcast in and answer a question I get a lot from members and those I coach on a one to one basis.

The question? “Jim, why do you recommend other peoples products, websites and services?”

Yeah, you might think doing that hurts me as a small business owner. The thing is, I don’t have all the answers or even the best answers. But the one answer I do have is that “I know what is best for people to succeed”.

If that means I send them someplace else then so be it. However, many times it means my members and clients get the best of all worlds.

Take a listen and I think you will see what I mean and how this all applies to you as an EMS professional.

I know you will enjoy this quick 20 min episode and I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year.
